Kalayjian, Jr. and the road led to nowhere since I was a wondering Gypsy and it happened during travel on the road from pain to pleasure I gave birth to two unruly spirits made of fire and water like a ditokous homeless mother. and I carried my offsprings with me, on the road from home to the desert, in my basket of dreams determined to shape both of them with the power and the discipline appropriate for the circus role applicable to the prevailing market trend, with the trick to win the most applause the feats that will collect more rewards, ... an alphabet taught on the desert sand trampling over the rocks and thorns stepping onto the wilderness with bleeding feet satisfying the scorched earth with blood without admitting pain or sorrow, to overcome the possibility of the probability of the sentence of total annihilation and like a ditokous Armenian mother I gave birth to two Spirits made of Heaven and Hell to strap revenge and forgiveness and it was during The Deportation on the road to dispersion since I had to cross The Desert and the road led to ... nowhere!
